Briefs cont’d from pg 6
Press that Trump also implicitly told him to lie about
a Moscow real estate project. Cohen has pleaded
guilty to lying to Congress about the project, which
he says Trump knew about as Cohen was negotiating
with Russia during the election.
Cohen says Trump did not directly tell him to lie,
but “he would look me in the eye and tell me there’s
no business in Russia and then go out and lie to the
American people by saying the same thing.”
Cohen says that “in his way, he was telling me to
lie.” He adds that lawyers for Trump had “reviewed
and edited” the statement in which Cohen falsely said
a proposal for a Trump Tower in Moscow had been
abandoned in January 2016. Cohen has since acknowl-
edged he continued pursuing the project for months
In the prepared testimony, Cohen apologizes for his
actions. “I am ashamed that I chose to take part in con-
cealing Mr. Trump’s illicit acts rather than listening
to my own conscience,” he says.
Chicago Will Elect a Black Woman as
its Mayor For First Time
CHICAGO (AP) — A former federal prosecutor and
a county board leader will face each other in a run-
off to become Chicago’s first black female mayor after
leading a large field Tuesday that included a member
of the Daley family that has dominated the city’s poli-
tics for much of the last six decades.
Political outsider Lori Lightfoot, who was a feder-
al prosecutor in northern Illinois, and Cook County
Board President Toni Preckwinkle were the top two
vote-getters among 14 candidates, but neither re-
ceived more than the 50 percent needed to avoid an
April 2 runoff. The winner will succeed Mayor Rahm
Emanuel to lead the nation’s third-largest city. Eman-
uel did not seek re-election.
Among those they defeated was William Daley, who
has never held major elected office but featured the
most famous surname in the race. His father, Rich-
ard J. Daley, and brother, Richard M. Daley, held the
city’s top job for nearly 43 years of a 55-year span be-
fore Emanuel took the oath in 2011. Daley is a former
U.S. Commerce secretary who, like Emanuel, served
as White House chief of staff to President Barack
Emanuel ‘s decision not to seek a third term drew
some of the biggest names in state and municipal
government as would-be successors, along with some
political newcomers with strong support, in a transi-
tional election for a lakefront metropolis still strug-
gling to shed its reputation for corruption, police
brutality and street violence.
“What do you think of us now?” Lightfoot said Tues-
